9:00 – 10:15 Introduction to WPF & Silverlight
This session introduces the general concepts behind WPF and Silverlight and shows various examples that highlight the benefit of these technologies over other UI approaches available. This session also starts on ongoing comparison of Silverlight vs. WPF (which will continue throughout the day). This session also introduces XAML (the markup language that drives most WPF/SL UIs) and other core concepts.
10:15 – 10:30 BREAK
10:30 – 12:00 Building a XAML-based UI
This session shows how to build user interfaces "the right way". This session starts with an introduction of various WPF/SL UI Design tools (including Visual Studio and Expression Blend). The session then guides the attendee from a simplistic and conventional UI approach (as it is used by other UI environments, such as WinForms or HTML) to a more modern approach that takes advantage of WPF and Silverlight's paradigms.
12:00 – 13:30 LUNCH BREAK
13:30 – 14:45 Further WPF/SL UI Techniques
This session continues the exploration of creating Silverlight and WPF UIs by taking a closer look at concepts such as data binding, automatic layout, view models, templates, and much more.
14:45 – 15:00 BREAK
15:00 – 16:30 Other WPF/SL Concepts
This session discusses various topics that have gone unexplained so far, including deployment options (both in WPF and Silverlight with a good look at the differences). This session also takes a look at topics such as 3D (with a detailed exploration of the differences between WPF and Silverlight), graphics acceleration (one again, with an exploration of the differences between WPF and Silverlight), graphics rendering (vector art), animations, a closer look at resource management, and much more.
16:30 – 16:45 BREAK
16:45 – ?? Ask the Experts / Q&A
